My verdict: Babyliss Argan oil range
I love a good hair oil so this was an easy decision to break with the shampoo and conditioner I was using and try the Babyliss Argan oil moisture repair range.
I was sent the shampoo, conditioner and treatment, using it for around six weeks before noticing a change.
Super important to me, before putting anything on my hair is knowing the products are sulfate and paraben free. Sulfate is, among other things, a foaming agent that strips natural oils from our hair, drying it out. Parabens are chemicals – enough said.
This shampoo and conditioner combo are about moisture replenishment, repairing damage caused from too much straightening or curling and environmental factors like pollution and chemicals. It’s safe to use on coloured hair.
Then there’s the treatment oil that can be used on wet or dry hair, reducing split ends, also protecting our locks from heat styling and the environment. You only need the smallest amount of this, especially if you’re using it on dry hair. No one likes a grease ball.
So, a little about my hair. I have naturally wavy hair (not in the good ‘woke up this way, beach waves look’) but more needing some serious styling to make the waves look remotely decent. This usually involves heat.
Most of the time I get the GHD out and straighten my hair. That’s pretty much heat applied everyday. Yes, I know what you’re thinking but this is why I use an abundance of hair protectors and treatments and masks. I also have a bit of frizz and the baby fuzz hair around my forehead. Don’t even get me started on this!
Reading this product would repair damaged hair, especially split ends and help with breakage meant I was definitely giving it a go. I already had a Moroccan oil treatment I was using and loving so thought I’d branch out to Argan oil.
It’s not my favourite smelling product of all time but I could get past that. I wash my hair twice a week so I used it a fair few times in about six weeks.
It made my hair really fluffy and static which is a problem I’d never had before. It was also a lot softer making it a bit harder to manage and that meant more product to keep the waves in place. This wasn’t what I was expecting after about three weeks of use.
I persevered for a few more weeks just in case my hair decided to have a change of heart, but nothing changed.
Running my fingers through my hair created the static and after straightening, it just didn’t sit right. I pride myself on having good hair most days (we can’t be on our game all the time) and I didn’t feel like myself because of the way my hair reacted.
I think this product would be better for people with thicker hair than me, especially if you have curly hair that’s hard to manage.
Let me know if you’ve used this product and what you thought or if there’s something else you’re loving right now.
